Sales Manager Doug Hazelwood and President Jim Murr provide free estimates and inspections for Dun-Rite Roofing.
Jim Murr, president of Dun-Rite Roofing, says the company was established in 1992 as a small business providing roofing services for mostly “new construction” home builders. Today the company has multiple roofing crews that provide roofs for both new construction and complete tear off and roof replacements, including wind and hail repair, as well as seamless guttering. They are members of the Oklahoma Roofing Contractors Association (ORCA), Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa, and work with Habitat for Humanity.
Jim’s philosophy has always been to treat his customers as he himself would like to be treated. “One of my biggest annoyances is high-pressure salesmen. I assure you, we value any opportunity to quote your roofing job and your project is very important to us. But once we’ve met with you and have provided a free estimate and proposal, we will not keep contacting you unless you request that we do so.”
Dun-Rite Roofing has served customers throughout the state of Oklahoma as well as sections of southern Kansas. Services include all types of residential roofing, including metal, composition shingles (new construction and reroofs), wind and hail damage repair, seamless guttering, and attic ventilation.
They work with builders, realtors and especially homeowners requiring roof services, inspections and recommendations. Shingle samples can be provided with your personal estimate, or you can always drop by the office showroom – open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – to make selections from multiple styles and manufacturers.
When your roof is damaged from wind, ice or hail and requires maintenance, repair or replacement, you’ll find reassurance in knowing that Dun-Rite Roofing uses only the highest quality materials, and their roofers are proficient in installing everything from standing seam metal roofing, to all types of composition shingles. “Most of our employees have been with us for many years, and we stand behind the quality of their work with a five year ‘workmanship’ warranty, as well as whatever type of material warrantee is offered by the manufacturer,” says Jim.
Dun-Rite Roofing is fully licensed and insured. You may recognize the well-known brands they carry: Tamko, GAF, Owens Corning, Malarkey and CertainTeed.
With the storm season upon us, Jim cautions to be certain you know with whom you are contracting to do any repair work, making sure you’re talking with a locally established company, and not just some guy in a pickup that blew into town with the latest wind and hail storm. The Oklahoma Roofing Contractor Registration Act was developed to regulate the roofing industry and protect consumers from fraudulent contractors. Make sure your contractor is properly registered. Although Dun-Rite will be happy to assist you in filing any insurance claim, Jim says to be wary of any contractor wanting to file the claim for you. Every year, individuals and insurance companies are ripped off by fraudulent claims, leading to cancelled policies and higher premiums. Most companies can be found on the Better Business Bureau website as well as their ratings and reviews. The information is free and is a great way to gain knowledge about a potential contractor.
Jim Murr and Dun-Rite Roofing are proud of the A+ record they’ve maintained with the BBB throughout the years. “When you need a roofing company, please keep Dun-Rite in mind,” said Jim. “We’ll be right here serving our friends and neighbors any time we’re needed.”
